what's acceptable and when?

Parents. They decide what you can do and when you can do it. How old should you be to experience the following things?: -sleeping over a boyfriend/girlfriend's house
-going on a weekend vacation with friends
-having a job that involves working late at night
until early the next morning
-going places without having to ask your parents
if you can go
-staying out without a curfew

i'm almost 19, and i personally have a curfew. i have to be home by 11:30 every night. and i can't do any of these things. i think that by my age, teenagers should have more control over their own lives in order to prepare them for the future when their parents aren't around.

what do you think?

Their treating you like a 2 year old. I would talk to them and tell them your side of the story, so they at least can see it in your prospective.

Re: what's acceptable and when?

At 19 none of these restrictions should really be placed on you, though I guess it really depends on the individual. Have you shown in the past you can't be trusted?

Re: what's acceptable and when?

I'm the good kid. I have never smoked or had alcohol. I'm always home by curfew and I've never done anything bad. My younger sister's 16 and she does all that stuff and my mom has no idea. She had a pregnancy scare last month.

Re: what's acceptable and when?

I can do all those things if I want to and I'm 18
only for that working late they would pick me up since my mom doesnt want me to walk alone to home at night and such. but if Im not alone that wouldnt matter.

Think its bit stupid yes

Re: what's acceptable and when?

defenitely not all parents, but most, have a border line god complex; they feel they know whats best for their kid, without realising that they are confusing their own interests with the interests of their child. wait, your 18? your an emancipated youth, buddy(assuming 18 is not the legal age in your location. you actually became an emancipated youth at 16).

off topic, an older guy that i know who is a server at the local pub, had his life destroyed by his parents. they didn't let him socialize with anyone until he was 16 (he was home schooled), but, unfortunately, by the time he got out to socialize, his socialization skills were retarded by 10 years. he is now a social outkast, not by choice, but because he cannot recover from the damage his parents did to him. however, ignorant adults will ALWAYS play the "age is wisdom" card, which is absolute poop. i know many adults that are children by their own standards.

Re: what's acceptable and when?

My mom is an authoritarian. She sets the rules "because she said so". I wouldn't have any of the limitations that I have now if I were in a four-year college, and I think that's why she's sheltering me. I think she wants to hold onto what's left of my childhood or something.

What would someone like me do to get that freedom?

Twenty-Five_25 will become famous soon enough




Re: what's acceptable and when?

I guess its debatable. Do I think they should let go of the reigns some more... sure. Honestly, if you're living under their roof...ehh, not much you can do about it.

If i had to put my foot down on one of them, it would be the work hours. You need to be able to make a living for yourself so you can strike out on your own... that's the battle I would focus on now.

Re: what's acceptable and when?

If they're letting you live under their roof, especially if you aren't paying rent, you abide by their rules.. If you don't like it, you're old enough to move out.

Re: what's acceptable and when?

I think , at 19, definitely the kid has control. at about 14 and up, the kid should get more say in his/her choices (girlfriend, job, etc.)

Re: what's acceptable and when?

It all depends on the parents, I guess, and their personal beliefs. Personally I think anyone over 18 should be able to do all those things they aren't allowing you to do. But if you're living under their roof you pretty much do whatever they tell you to.

My advice is, get the fuck out of there.
